Members of Holy Name of Jesus Parish are about To meet Vancouver city planners to discuss the future of the neighbourhood.

On the agenda is Phase 3 of the city’s Cambie Corridor project. That plan includes various housing, transit, and other development projects along a 19-kilometre stretch of Cambie Street.
“We have to be responsible stewards of the property that was purchased for the use of the parish for its mission,” said Father Stanley Galvon.
More than 300 parishioners have signed a petition outlining their concerns about Phase 3. Those concerns include a proposed SkyTrain station at 33rd Avenue, the intersection where their church stands. Find out more here.
